This Is Me

The Block Productions presents 'This Is Me'!

This is our music video for the song This Is Me from the movie The Greatest Showman. 
We love this song because it reminds us to be brave and unashamed of who we are no matter what anyone says. Never let anyone's words get you down. 

Kia kaha.

What's in your lunchbox?

This term, our school theme is Move Ya Body! We are learning how to live a healthy life. 
Walking to school, playing games and sports outside with friends, drinking lots of water, brushing our teeth and getting plenty of sleep are some of the ways we can be healthy.

Healthy eating is another way we can live a healthy life! 
Here are some of our lunchbox stars from this term...

Matariki Day Fun!

Each year, Pt England School celebrates Matariki Day by having a fun day filled with food, sports, movie making and craft. Students get to choose which activity they would like to participate in. 

This year, Miss Scanlan's group made star shaped pikelets and Matariki stars with wool and wire. 
We had so much fun grooving to the music, getting creative and eating delicious pikelets. 
Please enjoy the video below of our day.

Julianna's Kaitiaki Animation

This is my animation. It is about what my Kaitiaki does to protect our environment. My Kaitiaki could burn rubbish then the rubbish will turn into flowers. Also it could make anything appear with its fire breathing.
Julianna, The Block.

Omaru Creek Art

Hello 2018! 

This term we are learning about 
'Kaitiakitanga i nga wa katoa'

At the moment, we are learning about how the Omaru Creek has been impacted by pollution. So, we went for a walk down the road and sat beside the creek to sketch it.

We pretended our eyes were like a camera and drew what we could see in front of us. Afterwards, we went back to school and used our sketches to paint some beautiful pictures!
